Long-range missiles will be included in the first American military aid package. Ukraine will receive them for the first time.

The next $1 billion US military aid package to Ukraine may include ATACMS long-range missiles for the first time. CNN writes about this on Tuesday, April 23, citing sources.”

“During congressional briefings in recent weeks, administration officials noted that the United States is likely to send long-range ATACMS to Ukraine for the first time as part of a new aid package,” the publication said.

A White House spokesman declined to comment on the contents of the package to CNN but said the US “stands ready to quickly send military assistance to Ukraine to meet its immediate combat and air defense needs once the proposal is passed.” legislation in the Senate and be signed into law.”

It was noted that last fall the United States moved the medium-range ATACMS to Ukraine for the first time. These missiles can hit targets at a distance of about 160 km. At the same time, the longer-range version is capable of hitting 300 km.

The new aid package will be provided through the PDA mechanism – that is, weapons will be provided to Ukraine from the stocks of the American army, which is the fastest route available.

ATACMS are American ground-launched ballistic missiles. They can carry both individual warheads and cluster charges. The launch is carried out from the HIMARS installation or highly mobile artillery rocket system.

Earlier, the head of the US Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, said that Ukraine will receive ATACMS by the end of next week.
